Located 20 miles from Indianapolis, Fishers is a small town whose population has exploded sixfold in the past decade. BusinessWeek named Fishers the “most affordable suburb” in 2010, while Money magazine ranked it as the country’s “10th best place to live” in 2008. Amusements include 17 parks, a Renaissance Faire, and community theater with family-friendly shows. There’s a private pre-K-8 Islamic school, Eman, with an on-site mosque, Arabic language classes, and a strict dress code. But the primary lure attracting new residents are the 18 public schools in its district, Hamilton Southeastern Schools — every one of which has a GreatSchools perfect-10 score.
With more than 95% of its graduates aiming for a college education, Fishers High School is one of the country's top-performing high schools. In addition to high academic standards, it offers a character education program and small classes — a commendable goal when you’re the fastest-growing school district in Indiana. The high school also excels in extracurricular activities, with state-contending teams in Quiz Bowl, Spell Bowl, Destination ImagiNation, cross-country running, rugby, cheerleading and dance, and percussion ensemble.
